Inbetween slacking off and procrastinating from doing Corporate Financial Management homework, I jumped onto Impulse just to have a look around and see if there was an update or anything. Upon browsing to the My Desktop tab I noticed a free trial for ObjectDock. Seeing that my desktop was a complete mess and I was in the middle of making an attempt to make my PC look as new-fangled and cool as possible I decided to give it a try.
After downloading it and mucking around with the themes and settings I got it to a nice position and size. I thought to myself that this program would be a good way to get rid of some of the clutter (My Computer, My Documents etc) and free up some room on my desktop. It only hit me later on that I could do so much more than that...
Banishing the game shortcuts to be imprisoned within the magical folders of genres.
I have been able to get rid of about 20+ game shortcuts on my desktop, carefully organised away in their appropiate genres so they are easy to find and execute.
The more astute might notice that I have started work on creating my own set of icons for each game genre's shortcut folder. I am working on a G36C one for first-person shooters, and have got a good idea of what I want for the rest.
All in all ObjectDock will give me a hell of alot more room on my desktop (once I sort out the rest of the crap left). I am eager to investigate as to what the Plus version offers over the free trial.
